Process Oriented Psychology

We tend to push our minds out of consciousness and ignore them. This is the time when mental disorder likely to potentially occurs.

So we open a gate to the theatre; the stage for acting one’s life.

A good treatment

A director will understand their tendency and characters.

SELVES are inherited to act specific characters, like one is good at dancing and another is good at speaking.

Some SELVES say, “It’s too difficult for me!” , because they have not enough skill to act.

Some SELVES say, “I don’t want to do that!”, because of their obstinate, selfish or timid character.

Some SELVES say, “My role is so tiny that I am not important!”, because the one look down on oneself and don’t notice the importance of one’s role.

Some SELVES say, “I am angry! You ignore me!” 

Some SELVES even say, “I am tired to act!” 

A director also helps them not be drowned in the storm of thoughts and emotions.


Practice in the theatre

What was Macbeth’s remedy? The answer is Lady Macbeth. We can say “He has attachment disorder” in this modern era. To know what is a human being, commanding from the perspective of psychology helps us. There is a person who behaves like a heroin of A Streetcar Named Desire. Theater encourage us to understand ourselves so that we would be more kind to mankind.

Find a scentient cue

Reading the text, we can find some essential moments in the actions or the events. Do these moments need sound or music? Actors’ speaking is also taken as sound. Which one has more impressive effect? In some case, sound seems to be demanded by something, which says “Give me a voice”.

Help actors integrate themselves

Sound can empower actors as well as costume and props or so. Too much sound interrupts actors’ speaking, though. Sound can give them a direction to act and speak. “Quartet” written by Heiner Müller demands actors to speak in monologue; long, long, eternal monologue. Sound helps them.
